They best part of Halloween is having a fun and original costume to wear out to parties, but wearing a couples costume makes it that much better.  Girls, don’t let your guy get out of dressing up this year, and guys, do you really want your girl to be just another sexy cat?

Try and find something fun you can wear together, and know that nobody else at the party will have on.  Ditch the Pacman/Mrs. Pacman, and go for something a little more modern.  How about dressing up at Ellie Goulding and her boyfriend Skrillex this Halloween?

Here’s what you’re going to need to make this costume.  Let’s start with Ellie from her “Lights” music video:

Hair and Make Up

Ellie has some pretty legendary Blonde hair.  If you’re not a natural Blonde, you’ll want to invest in some hair dye or a wig.  Add some strawberry pink tips and you’re on your way.  If you really want to go all out, shave a chunk of hair off the left side of your head like she does.

Ellie doesn’t go too heavy on the make-up.  Some light pink lipstick and mascara will do the trick.


It’s going to be hard to find the exact dress Ellie wore in the “Lights” music video.  Any little black dress will work.


A lot of your Halloween budget can go into finding the perfect boots.  Ellie wears a pair of high heeled black leather boots that stop above her ankle.

Two key items you’ll need to pull off the Ellie Goulding look are, a tambourine and black leather fingerless gloves.

Now that you have your Ellie Goulding “Lights” costume down, let’s move on to Skrillex.


You’re going to need long jet black hair that looks like it hasn’t been washed in a week.   If you already have this, shave the left side of your head too and you’re on your way.  If not, time to start looking in the wig shops.


Thanks to people like Skrillex, thick rimmed glasses are in right now.  You’ll need a large pair of black rimmed glasses.  The brand he wears is Sabre.

Black, Black and More Black

It seems, like Skrillex doesn’t mind a heat very much, because he loves Black!  Find yourself a Black t-shirt, Black Levis and a black jacket.


Top off your Skrillex look by carrying some vinyl, or even a Grammy award.

Now that you’ve got your couples costume down, take it one step further by DJing and singing at the party.
